The help and generosity of our supporters is vital to ensure we can continue using gardening to improve lives. Your support is greatly valued.

If you’re interested in getting involved and helping us continue our work there are several areas in which you can help us:

Gardeners:
By working alongside our participants on our community gardens you’ll provide practical support, help with planning, advice, coaching, and carrying out general garden maintenance repairs. Some knowledge of gardening is preferred but not essential. Work is undertaken in all weathers, so a willingness to work outdoors is essential.

Helping with repairs:
Ongoing repairs are essential to the safety of those who attend the group activities. Working as part of a team you will provide practical support including repair to fences and sheds, carrying out risk assessments, and providing advice on health and safety on site.

Administration:
We also have need for administrative support, such as inputting information on databases, creating reports, preparing session materials and more.

Session Support/ Event Planning:
This can include volunteering to support staff during regular session, helping participants to feel welcome, ensuring they are engaged, finding information and help with signposting to local services, as well as, helping to organise activities, hand-holding, paying travel expenses and more. It also involves helping to organise smaller and bigger one-off events such as Refugee Week, allotment shows etc.

Marketing & PR: 
We are looking for people with some experience to support us with activities such as managing our social media, updating our website, helping to design publicity materials, compose text for our blog or our newsletters.

Trustees:
We continue to seek to recruit trustees, particularly with skills in HR, Enterprise, Strategy.
Trustees oversee the running of The Comfrey Project and have ultimate responsibility for making sure the charity is well run, is doing what it was set up to do, and is solvent.
